Lady Jay’s brings moonshine and shuffle bowling to Williamsburg
Had the Confederacy won the Civil War, every New York bar would be required to have moonshine, an outdoor patio and a bowling lane. For a glimpse of what might have been, check out Lady Jay's, Williamsburg's only irony-free redneck saloon.
Lady Jay's, founded last year by southern chef Sam Mason, is the place to play, let loose and unwind this summer. Having just re-opened their yard, a raised wooden deck lined with benches and encased ...
Best new summer beer garden in NYC lets you play, drink and tan
Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club, opening this Friday, isn't your run of the mill lower Manhattan surfside German beer hall. (Whatever that is.) Supplementing traditional beer garden fare (brats and beer), Beekman will be serving up pub-competition all summer long -- because nothing says "pool-shark" like a man in a bathing suit.

Playing under the sun is sure to whet your appetite for the post-game feast; pretzel-wrapped bratwurst, burgers from Pat LeFrieda (Shake Shack's butcher), plus a variety of cocktails and draft brews for your beach-boozing ...

Turtle Bay hosts the nation's beer pong qualifiers
The world of competitive beer pong is similar to a frat house. They're both filled with personally cutting psych-outs and plenty of dirty balls. There's one big difference, though: The top dog of the beer pong big leagues doesn't just stay on the table, he walks home with a wheelbarrow of cash.
Step up to the line and sink your ticket to the Atlantic City Beer Pong Championships by competing for one of the top two spots at Turtle Bay's sanctioned qualifier tourney. Win the event, and you'll score an all-expenses paid trip to the Northeast's classiest gambling paradise plus a shot at the $25,000 ...
